|There are various demands on materials from this
society. The developments of better materials are always desired and at the
same time the technology that evaluates materials is also being developed. The
contents of the term ‘materials’ has been changing and is various from hard to
soft materials. A living body including the human body is a typical example of
the soft materials.
My researching tool is X-ray especially X-ray optical
system. I have been using this tool to evaluate various materials and develop
technology to visualize the internal of materials nondestructively as a subject of my research.
In order to visualize with a higher precision, it is important to understand
the properties of the targeted materials. In addition to that, arranging
information that is required and plans to do so are as important. In this
few years, I have been making efforts in visualizing the affected parts
of human body with clinical application in mind. I am aiming at early detection
of breast cancer and early detection of articular cartilage problem.
So far, in
order to visualize things that cannot be seen with the naked eye, new X-ray
optical system is required. Differ from the past, by replacing the absorption
contrast and using the principle of refraction, it is believed that the imaging
ability can be improved. Furthermore, we are proceeding with the development of
new algorithm corresponding to refraction contrast in order to get the CT
image. The development of algorithm to reduce the radiation exposure dose is
also needed. Various hard works are also required to bring it to clinical. I am
hoping that I can proceed with all these research together with the students.
Material science is a very attractive field because it
uses the overall knowledge, making a new academic system. Therefore, please have the altitude to
study widely and think deeply.
Aim at ‘Only One’ rather than ‘Number One’
